In 1806, Napoleon tried to stop British commerce in an attempt to win the Napoleonic wars.
His actions resulted in a continental blockade which caused the cost of chocolate to rise steeply. But the creative chocolatiers of northern Italy started adding chopped hazelnuts to chocolate to make supplies last longer. They named it 'gianduia'.
In the middle 1900s, chocolate became expensive again due to rationing in Europe during World War II. In 1946, Italian pastry maker Pietro Ferrero added hazelnut once more and created Pasta Gianduja, renamed 'Nutella' in 1964.
It's popularity increased sharply, and it became a popular luxury for Italians. It led to Ferrero (now a global company) having an annual turnover of £6.5bn.
Apart from sugar and fat, Nutella is rich in chocolate. Chocolate contains addictive substances such as tryptophan and phenylethylamine. This causes feelings of excitement and attraction.
American blogger Sara Rosso established World Nutella day on 5th February 2007. It became a global phenomenon. Ferrero took ownership of this holiday in 2015 to allow it to spread further.

Best app ever! You heard it right. This app has helped me get back on my quest to get things done while equipping myself with knowledge everyday.
This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!
Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.
Don’t look further if you love learning new things. A refreshing concept that provides quick ideas for busy thought leaders.
Even five minutes a day will improve your thinking. I've come across new ideas and learnt to improve existing ways to become more motivated, confident and happier.
Brilliant. It feels fresh and encouraging. So many interesting pieces of information that are just enough to absorb and apply. So happy I found this.
I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!
Great for quick bits of information and interesting ideas around whatever topics you are interested in. Visually, it looks great as well.
